Radware Named a Leader in WAF Market by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions

Web applications are now more vulnerable than ever as they face an increasingly long list of threats. Hackers are constantly coming up with new, more sophisticated attack vectors and challenging traditional security tools. The deployment of new technologies is creating a wider set of threats and new security issues. Complex CI/CD environments are requiring that security does not come at the expense of agility. And strict regulatory requirements are imposing severe punishment on organizations that fail to secure their customer’s data. 

Against this myriad of threats and challenges, organizations need application security, which is at once high-grade, comprehensive, and frictionless, so that it provides full protection without compromising operational efficiency. 

Radware has been at the forefront of these efforts, providing a state-of-the-art Web Application Firewall (WAF) that enables organizations to fully protect their web applications and sensitive customer data, without sacrificing the agility and flexibility required for modern application protection. 

This is why Radware is proud to be named a leader for WAF solutions by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions in their latest SPARK MatrixTM: Web Application Firewall (WAF) report. 

Radware was selected as a market leader from among 19 vendors in the global WAF market as measured both by customer impact and technology excellence. 

Why Radware stands out from the competition: 

  • A positive security model, using behavioral-based machine-learning algorithms 
  • Automatic policy generation 
  • Zero-day attack protection 
  • Built-in bot protection 
  • Managed security services by Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) 
  • Advanced analytics 
  • Flexible deployment models, which include hardware/virtual appliances, a cloud-based SaaS service, an integrated ADC/WAF offering, and a dedicated Kubernetes edition for microservices-based environments 

We believe Radware’s recognition in this report demonstrates Radware’s commitment to excellence across multiple domains: 

State-of-the-art protection: Radware’s WAF protections are based on a ‘positive’ security model and behavioral-based machine-learning algorithms. The technology studies legitimate user behavior patterns, and then automatically builds and deploys custom-tailored security policies, which allow legitimate user activity and blocks everything that deviates from these patterns. This offers both a higher level of protection and fewer false positives. 

Comprehensive protection: Radware’s WAF is not just a point solution, but rather a full-fledged suite of application security controls, which cover web application threats, bot protection, API abuse, and L7 DDoS attacks. The comprehensive suite helps organizations protect themselves against any type of application attack or vector. 

Fully managed security service: As application security becomes more complex, it is becoming a dedicated discipline within cybersecurity. With many organizations coping with staff shortages and skill gaps, Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT), a group of dedicated experts, is trained to help shoulder the burden of application security and provide attack-time support when needed. 

Frictionless deployment: Radware’s WAF solutions provide extensive built-in automation features, such as traffic learning, automatic policy generation, advanced analytics, and integration with DevOps tools. These features help organizations integrate application security directly into their CI/CD processes and close the gap between application development and application security. 

Flexible deployment options: Radware’s WAF solutions offer a multitude of deployment options and delivery methods, including physical or virtual appliances (for physical data centers or private clouds); cloud-based SaaS services integrated with Radware’s Alteon ADC (for ‘secure delivery’ use cases); and a dedicated Kubernetes edition (KWAF) for microservices-based application. These options enable Radware to not only provide full protection for any environment, regardless of the underlying platform, but also address any customer use-case or deployment architecture. 

The report recognizes Radware’s continual efforts to enhance the efficacy of its security algorithms, provide protections against emerging threat vectors, and offer deeper integration with development and management tools. 

“With its sophisticated technology platform, comprehensive functional capabilities, robust roadmap, compelling customer references, and customer value proposition, Radware is well-positioned to maintain and grow its share in the WAF market.”
